He has not only conducted many clinical trials in SAD, but he also developed the Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale, or LSAS, which is widely-used as a primary outcome measure in clinical research on SAD, as well as for evaluation in clinical practice. Most importantly, we share his passion in helping patients. His decades of expertise will add enormous value to our efforts to provide a new and more effective treatment to the millions of people who are suffering from this debilitating condition,” Mark Smith, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer of VistaGen stated in the news release.
